Accessibility

Mako Networks is committed to making its web presence as user-friendly and accessible as possible. To this end, we have used several techniques to help our visitors make the most of the website.

Access keys – using the site without a mouse

Most modern browsers support the use of access keys. These enable an user to jump to specific pages, or to specific points within a page, by using key combinations instead of mouse-clicks.

Throughout this website we have used the following access keys:

  • Access key 1 – Home page
  • Access key 2 – Services
  • Access key 3 – Appliances
  • Access key 4 – Partners
  • Access key 5 – About Mako
  • Access key 6 – Contact Us/feedback
  • Access key 0 – A reference list of accessibility keys (this page)

    • PC: Hold down the Alt key, press the number of the access key, release both keys then press ENTER
    • Mac: Hold down the Control key and press the number of the access key

Visual and technical design

The visual design of this site uses strong colors with a high contrast.

The graphical design of the website has been created using XHTML and CSS, not tables. Whilst some absolute pixel sizing is used, all text on this site is relative, so it should be readable at various font sizes. If your browser does not support style sheets, the website will still be usable.

If you have difficulty with any colors or fonts that we have chosen, we suggest turning these off, disabling style sheets in your web browser or using your own style sheet. If your browser supports this type of change, it can be found as follows:

  • Internet Explorer: Tools > Internet options > Accessibility
  • Firefox: View > Page style > No style
  • Opera: View > Style > User mode
  • Safari: No option available
  • Google Chrome: No option available
